Christopher de Souza on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
A “flexible system” is needed to differentiate between large corporate landlords and landlords who have invested in small commercial spaces as a form of retirement income, for example. MP Christopher de Souza said this in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5) during the debate on a Bill requiring landlords to give more rental waivers to struggling SME tenants amid the COVID-19 crisis. The Bill also allows repayment of rental arrears through instalments. Mr de Souza said this may hit the cash flow of private landlords and asked how they will be helped.
